    So I was using Azerus for a while, and then one day all my torrents reported the yellow smiley face. I am behind a router, but i have all the proper ports forwarded. So, I switched to ABC... same thing... yellow status. Anyone know why this would happen even with the ports forwarded correctly?

    maybe your PC's IP changed, and your router is forwarding to the old IP

    Nope that's not it. I've got it set to static, and I've checked it several times.

    Just to clarify, here's my setup:

    ADSL -> LinkSys Wireless Router -> WinXP

    I'm sure it's not the isp... I called them to ask if they blocked any ports and they said they don't. My downloads do work, they're just yellow, and I'm concerned that I could be getting faster speeds if they were green.

    Nope that's not it either. I turn that off as soon as I install the service pack.
